About the neighbourhood
Whether you just take long walks on the strand and absorb the stunning views of the Mourne Mountains or you schedule a new activity for every day, we think there is something for everyone in this beautiful area:

• Tyrella offers a fantastic safe sandy beach ideal for walkers, artists and for family play.
